The first time I was able to observe my charts was a few minutes ago. I noticed a sizable decline in the VIX. So much so, that my trigger to protect has approached.
Today's move is a bit odd. There should be a stronger market push upward with such a Vix decline. This makes me think the decline could be to do re-pricing of the Vix index.
Regardless, I took on some protection via the SP500 127 Feb Puts. I did not sell any positions.
